Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Baroque works the Litanies de la Vierge and the Pastorale de Noël, which are new to Malta, will be performed by the Ensemble Correspondances under the baton of Sébastien Daucé, just before Christmas.
The music, which depict the nativity story, surely promise to be spectacular, full of emotion and musical excellence.
Daucé is a French organist and harpsichordist and one of the most talented musicians of our time. Charpentier’s music is often described as a fusion of the talented French masters of the ‘first 17th century’ and the Roman composers of the mid-17th century.
Charpentier’s Litanies de la Vierge and the Pastorale de Noël will be performed on the 20th December 2014 at 8pm at Our Lady of Graces Sanctuary, Żabbar. For more information, please visit the Teatru Manoel website.
